The dumbest interior design ever!
First of all, the food is going the same way the rest of Sakae is going, it's getting worse day by day. Sashimi is stale and they have also been replacing ikura that is supposed to be in your order with inferior ebikko.
Quality is going downhill, period.
As for the interior design, some idiot decided to raise the floor level in an attempt to give it a more authentic Japanese experience. The idea was for the patrons to dine like they do in Japan, but since Singaporeans are more familiar with sitting than kneeling, they carved out a hollow to for leg room. So patrons sit on the elevated floor with their legs in the cavity. To make things worse, this outlet definitely wanted house more patrons, so they packed everything closer and there is hardly any room between the patron and the table.
With is stupid interior design, the waiters have to kneel at the tables. Authentic Japanese is one thing, but with the waiters and waitresses usually the ah bengs and ah lians or those penniless student types, it seems very mismatched. Not to mention that the kneeling part is just plain uncalled for. The management might as well also get the crew to wear kimonos.
The worst part has to be getting up to leave. With such tight spaces, it is a challenge to get up. Then think of ladies in skirts. Unglamorous is one thing, to zao geng is another. So ladies, if you have to eat there, please wear pants.
